    MP (NCM) Recruiting 20/21

    Infantry. The fact that it was a CT, not just an OT, most likely played a role in how long the process took (along with Covid this year).

    MP (NCM) Recruiting 20/21

    Got an email invite today to attend Military Police Selection Process (MPSP), I guess it's no longer known as MPAC anymore? Anyways my CT/OT has been in since early 2018 so I'm glad I'm finally making some progress with my application.

    The Land Operations Temperate Boots (LOTB)

    I would stick with issued kit at least until you finish your DP1 and then look around your unit and see what the guys with more time in are wearing, or not wearing, in terms of non-issued kit.

    The Land Operations Temperate Boots (LOTB)

    Was gonna get the same boots as my next pair, but they don't make a non-Goretex version of them. I find that my feet get sweaty in Goretex boots and the moisture just gets trapped inside.

    CAF Combat boots policy 2005-2018

    Check with your CoC or look and see what other guys are wearing. Some units are more relaxed while some aren't.

    Police searching for 3 Middle Eastern men videotaping Vancouver mall exits

    Pacific Center would sure make an attractive target. Lots of foot traffic and long narrow corridors.

    Help with pull ups

    You're gonna want to train on your pull ups. On my BMQ we had to do pull ups before every meal and on my DP1 we did pull ups every time we entered and left the shacks.
